    1. 3.65/5 "Ruhsal sağlık konularında tavsiye veren yazarlara ya da benzer kişilere karşı çok dikkatli olmalısınız. Bu insanların sağlık sorunları yaşamış olmaları hiçbir şey değiştirmez. Örneğin, daha önce benim de dişim ağrıdı diye ağzınızı açıp dişinizde kanal tedavisi uygulamama izin verir misiniz? Ne demek istediğimi anlıyorsunuz değil mi?" Yorumu için: kronikokur/201


    2. The publisher kindly provided me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review.This is sort of a guide book for mental health for children and young adults, although I personally would recommend it more for kids than young adults because the writing is very simple and many things are broken down to be very simple. However, if you do not know anything about mental health issues to start with, I think this could really be a helpful read, especially if you've been going through a hard time you [...]


    3. I have been looking forward to reading this book ever since I heard it would be happening a few months ago.I love Juno's books This Book Is Gay and All Of The Above (published under the name James Dawson, not Juno, don't be confused). I especially loved This Book Is Gay because it includes so many different topics and is as inclusive as possible. AND it teaches you really serious topics in a pretty funny way, sometimes incredibly funny and pun-y. So, when I heard Juno would be writing a book abo [...]



    4. AS SEEN ON: <"athousandwordsamillionbooks.bl THOUSAND WORDS A MILLION BOOKSI received a review copy from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own. Imagine going to one of those food tasting parties (assuming they're real, because I've never actually been to one) where all you do is get a preview, or a basic introduction to what the food will be like, and not the actual full course meal.That was what this book was like.Not that I'm comparin [...]


    5. Excellent guide on mental illness for young reader. Author provides a brief introduction into mental health and describes topics from anxiety to clinical depression. The text is complemented by testimonials of mostly young respondents. I especially liked the part on addictions. Juno Dawson delivers yet again. Author of This Book Is Gay proves that youth education is truly their forte. Would recommend.


    6. This is a quick but important read. One I don't even feel like I can rate in terms of the GR rating system. It is helpful and informative and I really wish this book had been around when I was a teenager. I applaud Juno Dawson for writing this book, for putting all this information out there for the teenagers who will need it. They might need help and they will find this book that has no judgements, humour and solid, helpful advise from a professional.


    7. Really interesting and informative guide to helping understand issues that involve mental health. Love the combination of Juno Dawson, case studies, illustrations (by Gemma Correll!) and the advice of clinical psychologist Dr Olivia Hewitt. Well put together!



    8. This review was originally posted on StrupagSometimes you find a book that you just know you have to read. Juno Dawson's Mind Your Head is one such book for me. In my early 30s I'm not really the target audience for this book, but having tackled mental illness myself for many years I instantly recognised the importance of this book. Having now read it, I can confirm that this is indeed a very important book/resource.Juno makes it very clear from the start that this isn't a self-help book (someth [...]


    9. Genom psykologisk passaparola, Londons samtalsterapeuter emellan, fick jag vetskap om denna boks existens. Trodde att jag skulle tycka att den var fantastisk, men störde mig TBQH på att författaren vill vara så till den grad nere med kidsen, språkligt sett. IDEK why.To be fair är detta samtidigt en utmärkt introduktion till klinisk psykologi eller en tröstbok för unga angående alla sorters mildare mental ohälsa. Gillar illustrationerna, t.ex. DSM-parodin "Big Fancy Book of Medical Dia [...]


    10. This book was quite uninformative, more for the typical tumblr-centred young teen who enjoys self-diagnosing than for anyone who is actually looking to overcome or manage a mental illness. I'd recommend it for parents to buy their kids once they start high school/turn 13. Whilst I do think that there are only two ways for mental illness to be perceived as serious as physical (to joke about them the same, and to only have them diagnosed by a relevant health professional) the majority of this book [...]



    11. Written in simple easy to understand language without patronising its targeted audience. Personally Matt Haig's Reasons to stay alive was better, but I'm not the intended audience for this book.



    12. --I learnt nothing new. I've googled mental illnesses a bit over the years, read/watched a small number of books/movies related to mental illness, I know a couple people who live with different mental illnesses, and my high school spent at least a half lesson talking about mental illness once so everything in this book is quite repetitive of things I already know (and not in a good way, but more on that later)--Yes, I knew going into this book that I got it from the children's reference section [...]


    13. This book is simply incredible. I do believe that this is definitely not targeted at me, just like Dawson's other success "this book is gay", But I am yet again so unbelievably jealous that this book came into the world after I needed it. I guess I just have to take one for the team on that part, but I am just so deeply amazed that everything I crawled through my teenage years to realize and learn for myself has been put so perfectly into such a short and easy read. This is a book that needs to [...]


    14. This is a great book on mental health that was simply written and easy to understand. Dawson's tone is often conversational and this book works better as a basic introduction, than an in-depth guide, however this makes it a perfect starting point for young people (and will hopefully encourage them to seek out more information where required.) There are a number of pupils who I want to share this with, and I hope that it will help them understand their own (and others) mental health better.


    15. It's very rare that I can say a book changed my life but that was exactly the case with Mind Your Head. Juno Dawson is an absolutely phenomenal woman and she will continue to inspire me everyday. Juno, if you're out there reading this please know that I cannot thank you enough for encouraging me and finally working up the courage to find help. Thank you ever so much - Amelia xxx



    16. I recommend this book to all people who have issues with mental health or know someone who does. This is really informative and not judging at all. A good encouraging book.


    17. As to Juno's previous books, I could have really done with this book when I was 14 and before I got help for my mental health.


    18. Originally posted on thefatgirlMind Your Head by Juno Dawson was another book recommended by Chelley Toy from Tales of Yesterday Book Blog, it is by the Author of the Month book for January for the British Book Challenge 2017. I wasn't too sure at first as I never quite manage to finish non-fiction books, however the subject of this one intrigued me - even more so after I'd read the sample.We all have a mind, so we all need to take care of our mental health as much as we need to take care of ou [...]

    20. The Duchess from The Glass House Girls reviews this book: The Ultimate Mental Heath Survival GuideIt has been no secret that I, myself suffer from anxiety. It was however a complete shock to me when later in life I was given a ‘name‘ for what I was feeling. For a long time, far too long in fact, I suffered Panic Attacks and debilitating sleepless nights and those who knew me simply said I ‘thought too much‘, or I was ‘slightly neurotic‘.I never sought out help. I never asked for advi [...]


    21. So, I decided to bulk buy Juno Dawson's books after seeing a good review from someone, and finally getting the push to actually follow up on my urge of doing exactly this after Edinburgh Book Festival's YA event, where I was introduced to them. I'm not usually this slow on book-buying, but at least it's been rectified.I will get to the fiction, but I had to read this one. Maybe it's because of a recent bad spell that's slowly going away, maybe it's because I'm always interested in seeing how the [...]


    22. There's a real need for more accessible, age appropriate non-fiction specifically for young adults. After all, they're going through a lot of the same issues as their not-so-young adult counterparts and the self-help section in bookshops seems to be growing at a ridiculously fast rate.In Mind Your Head, Juno Dawson talks frankly about mental health issues - including sharing her own experiences - and the result is an entertaining and informative guide to depression, anxiety, panic attacks, bully [...]


    23. Another brilliantly pitched book for teens to support them with tricky personal issues they will come up against in thier lives.This book dispels the myth that mental health is taboo, it shows that the label "mental health" covers a HUGE array of diagnosable conditions as well as temporary states, from bereavement and relationship breakdown to treatable longer term conditions. Juno encourages her readers to look to professionals for information and support. There are real life quotes and example [...]


    24. Mind Your Head is an important book. I think it’s imperative that mental health is openly discussed. Like Juno mentions, mental health is an illness that isn’t easily discussed within society. It should be. Especially as so many people suffer from mental health at some point in their lives. Mind Your Head is a piece of non fiction, but written in the frank and funny style that I have come to expect from Juno. It’s interesting to have the perspective of a psychologist as well. It’s writte [...]


    25. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking to educate themselves on mental health/illness but is a bit intimidated by the huge, dense books packed with psychological analysis and complex studies. This book is short, the statistics and data provided made easy to understand and the text is broken up by relieving drawings. If you already know quite a lot about mental illness then this book probably won't teach you much more than you already know because it is directed at young adults who [...]
